Aquinas Academy Parents’ Association (AAPA)

The AAPA is the primary means by which parents are involved with the Academy, providing many committee opportunities for parent participation as well as coordinating large fundraising efforts to support major projects on campus. By supporting the school through volunteering time and talent, parents also get to know other parents. All parents/guardians of Aquinas Academy students are automatically a member of the association.

AAPA Events 2018-19

Uniform Swap – July 16-17, 2019

Tuesday, July 16th from 6-8 p.m. and Wednesday, July 17th from 9-11 a.m.

If you are interested in donating school uniform items to the Uniform Swap, the donations can be placed into bins near the Main Office and in the girl’s locker room. Please only include dress code approved pieces in good condition and unaltered. Contact Tina Rossi with any questions or if you are interested in helping out with the swap.

Please read the Uniform/Dress Code for the 2019-2020 school year to know which uniform pieces are worn at each school level.

Co-chairs Needed – 2019-2020 school year

A.A.P.A. needs you!

Our school’s parent association is in need of another lower school co-chair, two middle school co-chairs, and an additional high school co-chair. If you can help in this very important organizational manner, please contact Jen Dingle (lower school co-chair), Sandi Giacobbe (high school co-chair), or Leslie Mitros.

Being a co-chair is generally a two-year commitment, with 2 chairs at each school level, to allow for new co-chairs to work with some veterans.
